In another sign that Americans are showing their disdain for the radicalized homosexual agenda and their drive to redefine family and marriage, a breaking news story out of the state capitol in New York is now reporting that two Democrats have joined Republican senators to give control of the state senate to the GOP. This puts the nail in the rainbow coffin in New York this year for legislating homosexual nuptials.

Senate GOP Seizes Control In Political Coup
By: NY1 News
With the help of two rogue Democrats, a group of state Republicans have seized control of the New York State Senate.
Leadership in Albany has been thrown into question as a result.
Republicans in the State Senate say they have seized power from State Senate Majority leader Malcolm Smith, a Democrat, and installed a bi-partisan majority.
Within an hour of the defection of Pedro Espada Jr. of the Bronx and Hiram Monserrate of Queens, Republicans anointed Dean Skelos of Long Island as the new Majority Leader, and Espada as President Pro Temp.
Following the news, the Democrats walked out of the Senate Chamber and the power and television feed were cut.
In a released statement, Monserrate said, "I am a life-long Democrat and remain a loyal Democrat. After today’s proceedings, I am proud to form a bi-partisan coalition that has elected the first Latino President pro Tem of the New York State Senate, my colleague, the Honorable Pedro Espada Jr. We look forward to conferencing with fellow Democrats to ensure that real reforms become a reality in the State of New York."
NY1 is following the developments out of Albany and will have more information when it becomes available.
